ASIP 2019 Training – Automated 3D Crack Beta Curve Development via Smart Sim Apps
Abstract: This short training course will discuss the creation of Sim Apps for the automatic generation of complex, solution-verified 2D and 3D beta factors via the integration of StressCheck’s parametric FEA engine, the Windows Component Object Model (COM) and Microsoft Excel VBA.
- The Sim App demo video can be viewed here.
- The 2D beta curve Sim App example can be downloaded here.
- The 3D beta curve Sim App example can be downloaded here.
Originally presented as a training course at the 2019 ASIP conference in San Antonio, TX.

“In the case of the through crack configuration, the comparison of experimental and StressCheck® derived geometry factors showed a close correlation and were an improvement to solutions provided in AFGROW at the time. Based on the results of this research, StressCheck® pin-loaded lug geometry factors have since been incorporated into the AFGROW software.”
